For Trottar
The Kontarsky brothers were among the finest duo-pianist teams of their day, performing from the 1950’s through 1983, when Aloys suffered a debilitating stroke. They were champions of modern music, premiering works from Stockhausen, Berio, and Zimmerman among others, and made a number of fine records for Deutsche Grammophon over the course of their careers.

When listening to this album, you are led into a different world. Slow pieces are played wonderfully delicately, the faster ones more powerful and with a lot of temperament. Super sound quality. Only to recommend!

Fabulous music, fabulous recording, fabulous performance. The Kontarsky brothers were strong technicians, intuitive partners, and had a great feel for Impressionistic music. The recorded sound is also superb.
